Higher end systems usually end up using almost all of the cables anyway, and yes, modular connections DO affect power throughput.

I would take a single-rail Olympia/Decathlon over a multi-railed Zeus. Single-rail avoids the confusion of different rails and assigning the rails to a graphic card, CPU, etc.

I just ordered the OP650. Although there is no serious risk or performance loss from the modular cable setup, it is better to go with the non-modular.

I went with the OP650 over the DA650 because it was cheaper and I could care less if there are extra wires in my case. I go for price/performance before looks.

Also, the OP650 can be had a Eastluna.com for $125 and at Performance-Pcs.com for $129.95. Much better deals than NewEgg.com, and they are 100% trustworthy.

You won't be disappointed. It's a beast.
